Life & Work with Jean-Paul Builes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jean-Paul Builes.

Hi Jean-Paul, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Reposado started on the streets. Playing for the people. We always play to connect and have a conversation with our community. Today, we still play the streets but are also honored with the opportunity to share on bigger stages. Our home will always be in the streets with the people.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I will say I knew I was doing something right because it has always felt like there was a force guiding us. Yes, times have been REAL, but never without purpose.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
We are known for is delivering a high energy inclusive show with traditions styles but with a modern attitude leading the message. We mix Latin, Funk, Afrobeat, and many other styles together to create what we call TequilaFunk.

Most proud of the community that has gathered and continues to gather around this cause.

The goal is to create settings where people can pray, release, socialize, and create.

Do you have any advice for those looking to network or find a mentor?
Don’t believe the hype. Trust your gut.
